HERE WITH ANOTHER TRIPLE POST

Hi Friends

Haven't had time for crafting today as I'm busy getting ready for guests this week but just had to post a couple of cards that I made yesterday but it was too late to post them all last night.

So first up is to enter the CAS Colour & Sketches challenge and initially this card started out as my one-layer card for Less is More but I couldn't resist putting it on a coloured card blank. Once again I'm trying out another of the new releases I bought from Clearly Besotted, this time Superstar and what a superb set it is and I think I'll be using this on loads of cards. The birthday boy sentiment is also Clearly Besotted from the In the Frame set, released in January and I've added some Josy Rose nailheads in blue and green.


I'm also heading over to Addicted to Stamps with this one as the theme is 'Anything Goes'.



Next up is my entry to Freshly Made Sketches. I'm afraid the stamp has been in my stash for years and I remember my sister bought it in America but I don't know the make. I love the striking image though and for this card I've heat embossed it in black and the same with the sentiment onto teal coloured vellum. The sentiment is from my new Dandelion Dream set from Clearly Besotted. Papers and card are from my stash and I've added a couple of black pearls and some enamel dots. 






Last up is my entry to Color Throwdown and I so adore the colour combo this week and the gorgeous little decorated cakes so I've tried to recreate them with some cupcakes from my Crafty American Auntie. This card is also heading over to Pixies Crafty Snippet Playground as I have used a few odds and ends that needed a good old dig and delve to find the little tiddlers! Feeling a bit guilty as I intended to enter last week but then completely ran out of time.


                              


The sentiment is Clearly Besotted (It's you birthday set) and I've embossed the pink panel using a swirly embossing folder from Cuttlebug. Papers, gems and twine from my stash.



And that's my lot and I've a strong feeling it's going to be the weekend again before I set foot in my craft cupboard but as usual I'll be checking out your blogs and hope to comment along the way.

Have a good week and catch you soon.

Sarah

  3. I came here from the Snippet Playground. I like all your cards but the middle one made me giggle. Ohmygawd. Everyone had that stamp for awhile. I haven't seen it for so long. I love your pieced together cupcakes with the embossed panel and the twine. I swear I've tried to add twine into almost all the cards I've made recently and it's just a no go.
